DC Comics Cancels Doom Patrol #12 Orders, Delays It Until at Least April

Posted by January 18, 2018 Comment

Doom Patrol, the DC/Young Animal comic book by Gerard Way and Nick Derington is a but of a Schroedinger’s comic, that both exists and does not exist. It is certainly published, but every time you look at the schedules it seems to have disappeared.

Back in March 2017, with the comic book getting later and later, DC Comics cancelled orders for issues 6-9. They were then resolicited later in the year. But they still didn’t make those dates and were still late.

So even though it has been solicited as an ongoing monthly title, and the first issue came out in September 2016, Doom Patrol #10 which was eventually solicited for October 2017, will now be out next Wednesday, a further three months late, #11 solicited for November will be out on March 4th, four months late and Doom Patrol #12, solicited for December has now been cancelled and retailer orders have been made null and void. It will be resolicited at some point, but the earliest date will be April. And maybe not even then.

Here are the current schedules

The world is going haywire, and it’s up to the Doom Patrol to save it from going to S#!%. Weird things continue to happen that only the Chief can (attempt to) explain. Plus, tap dancing, and secret origins revealed!In Shops: Jan 24, 2018

Doom Patrol fights Dada and someone becomes a mama. How did life and death become so intertwined? It’s Robotman versus a classic foe as Casey and Terry take us into a whole new territory we’ve never seen before. But could this newness also just be a whole lot of nothing?In Shops: Mar 14, 2018

Something normal is happening to the Doom Patrol. Which means not weird, since their own normal is very weird. There are mysterious forces at work, unseen hands rewriting history, and the change is so gradual, the team doesn’t even necessarily see how much they are changing. The end of our second big DOOM PATROL arc leads into big things to come next month! In Shops: WHO KNOWS?
